Some history of the Black's Head at Abbot's Bromley in the County of Staffordshire

In the early 19th century this tavern traded as the Black-a-Moor's Head.

I have not researched this public-house in any detail. However, I thought I would upload a photograph so at least there is something to look at. I have also included the names of a few licensees. Oh, and an old newspaper article. So, better than a blank page but a lot of work needed. In the meantime, there is a lot of information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

Note : this is not a complete list of licensees for this pub. The dates of early licensees are sourced from trade directories, census data, electoral rolls, rate books and newspaper articles. Names taken from trade directories may be slightly inaccurate as there is some slippage from publication dates and the actual movement of people.
